Eonon GM5163 Car GPS Review from our Customer

Here is a very typical review from our loyal customer for his GM5163 Mazda 3 Car GPS.


"Summary: I’m very happy with my Eonon GM5163 Car DVD GPS. I love the way it looks in the car.


My Info: 2012 Mazdaspeed3 Bose system (navigation, keyless, …)


-Looks awesome. It looks like it could have come from the factory.
-Quality is nice.
-The unit as a whole is very fast/responsive.
-Factory harness needed little modification with the Bose system, but other than that it worked like a charm. All other connections worked great.
-The right display shows the FM station, volume and displays the ‘mode’ the GM5163 is in. However, I wish it would display the FM station (if playing) while the navigation is running. It displays “NAV”.
-All of the documentation says the maximum memory capacity is 16GB. Well, 32GB works just fine! Even their “Live Support” said 16GB max.
-FM Radio: -The reception is the same if not a little better than the OEM radio.
-I think the FM radio sounds better than OEM.
-The next station seek is very fast.
-The tuning knob is very fast.
-I think it looks fine.
-The only thing I think they could improve on is the area that displays the information (song title). It barely has enough room for a word let alone the whole title.

-MP3s – See Cons!
Rear USB2 – The USB in the back of the radio can be used for any media (MP3s, Videos and Pictures)

-SD Slot on the Front: Works with 32GB cards (which they say 16GB is max). I’ve tried MP3s and divx formats.
-The maps that comes with the unit works well.
-I put iGo maps on it. It takes a ~10s to load. It works very well. Even with maps running the unit is very responsive.

-I placed the GPS antenna on top of the vent (see picture). It picked up ~6 satellites in my garage with good signal strength.

-While NAV is running, MP3 from the USB2 or SD card plays fine. The radio continues without issue. A2DP streaming works just fine.

-The OEM navigation works too. However, I don’t think the audio prompts work. I haven’t tried…

-Mirroring – Works like a champ. My Note 2 had a few issues, but once I figured out my phone, I fixed my phone and it works well.

-The NFC works well too.

-The GM5163 detects when the headlights are on.

-The GM5163 detects when in reverse. I don’t have the rearview camera connected yet. It’s too dang cold to install it at the moment. One minor thing, the harness that comes with the radio doesn’t have a connection for reverse specifically for the review camera. So, you’ll have splice into the GM5163’s harness (not the car’s harness). Not a big deal…

-DVDs – Plays them just fine. I wish the display could get a little brighter, but it works fine.

-Fader/Balance both work properly (yes with the Bose system). I’ve read a few places that the fader would not work and you needed a special adapter. Not true…


-An EQ would be great. It has separate treble and base, but a 5 band EQ would be much better.
On the Mazda’s left display, the display item that shows the radio preset or the artist/album/title just displays “audio off”.
-I had to modify the harness that came with the GM5163. I cut the audio wires and put male RCA plugs on them. Then plugged them into the GM5163’s low-level audio out. This really isn’t a con since they said I’d need to modify it for a Bose system. It did work without the modification, but the lowest volume setting (1) was too loud.
-A2DP doesn’t sound quite as good as the OEM radio (but it is close!)
-MP3 volume could be a little louder, but this may be just the way the Bose amp is.
Probably has nothing to do with the GM5163.

-The steering wheel phone control don’t work which I knew before buying the unit.


I’ve read that there is an adapter that connects to the CAN bus that detects the phone buttons. Ive also read that it is impossible because those buttons interface to the Mazda Bluetooth module directly. At any rate, if I figure out a way to detect the button(s), the GM5163 Car DVD has two wires on the back that may be able detect them."


Hope this detailed and great review help you know our GM5163 car DVD player much better, and welcome to order it if you have intrest!
